Shareholder Activism

Goodmans is the market leader in shareholder rights and activism mandates. Our lawyers deliver timely, creative and pragmatic solutions agreeable to all parties. With a reputation for collegiality in circumstances that can be contentious, our lawyers model constructive dialogue that often circumvents major escalation and leads to optimal dispute settlements.

At the same time, we have been extremely effective in winning protracted proxy contests for activists and boards where the only practical solution is to fight. We have time-honoured relationships with leading proxy solicitation firms, investor relations firms and media relations experts in Canada and internationally and are the leading recipient of referrals from other law firms in Canada and abroad.
